Can anyone ID these cacti, and this succulent?

I bought these last year with no identification. The cactus in the middle looks like a mini San Pedro too me, but just skinny at the base (I doubt it's a San Pedro variety). I think the succulent is an Aloe Aristata, but wanted someone to verify that. I also included another picture of that one cactus (it's to the side of the photo next to the aloe). Thanks.

There are cactus ID sites on the web that I will research on. There are many different cacti out there

I believe your middle cactus is Myrtillocactus geometrizans.

That Aloe might be A. aristata, but you would need to verify it has filaments at leaf ends (let it grow some?), or it could be a hybrid of same.

The other Aloe seems to be Aloe vera var. chinensis.
